FRITZ STEINEGGER -- a native of Phoenix, Arizona --
studied in New York with Wolfgang Rose, at the
Akademie in Vienna with Ludwig Czaczkes, and at the
Conservatoire in Geneva with Nikita Magaloff.
A prize-winner at the International Casella
Competition, he went on to play recital tours of
Europe, appearing as soloist with such leading
ensembles as the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, the
Radio Cologne Orchestra, and the Scarlatti Orchestra
Steinegger's recent activities have been centered in
Latin America, where he concertizes widely, from
Mexico to Argentina. Mexico City´s leading newspaper,
Novedades, recently hailed him as "something quite
different: a free spirit in the world of classical music".
